Israeli soldiers invaded, on Thursday at night, Khirbat Hamsa al-Foqa village, in Northern Plains of the occupied West Bank, and handed warrants to 21 families, ordering them to leave their dwellings while the army conducts live fire training.
The soldiers handed 18 orders to 21 families, instructing them all to leave their homes next Tuesday, June 26th, so that the army can conduct its live fire training, which also includes explosives.
Moâtaz Bisharat, a Palestinian official who monitors Israel’s illegal colonist activities in Tubas Governate, said the army conducted several military drills in the same area, over the last two months, repeatedly displacing the families, and placing them in danger due to explosive materials dropped during training, in addition to the excessive devastation to agricultural lands.
In January of this year, the soldiers shot a Palestinian child with a live round in the head, during âmilitary trainingâ near Tubas, in northeastern West Bank.
